Right click image displays list of layers

This is probably a really dumb question, but I couldn't find an answer to it anywhere on the forums or otherwise.

When I right click an image/layer using the move tool, it displays a list of the layers under it rather than the normal contextual menu (with resize image, free transform, flip image, rotate image, etc). The normal contextual menu is pretty useful to me, and I don't know what I could have changed to make right click function differently. Is there any way to restore the previous contextual menu? When I tried to reset the move tool, the default right click was the list of layers thing.
In addition, I just started using photoshop and I don't recall modifying any settings in the move tool, so I assume my previous contextual menu is normal.
Thanks in advance for any help with my problem!

That is the default behaviour, what you call »normal« is not. The Transformation options would be shown when right-clicking after a Transformation has been invoked (cmd-T or Edit > Free Transform for example).

has answered your question but If you were looking for those selections when right clicking in order to work more fluently or quicker, I suggest looking into learning some keyboard short cuts. They'll become second nature to you and make your projects move by much quicker rather then scanning the menus for what you're looking for.

Mine USED to do exactly what you're talking about in here. I want to set it back up to do this... did you ever figure out how?
